2010 Fantasy Outlook

Alex seems like a nice kid, but he is currently authoring a career that will put him down as one of the most mediocre #1 picks of all-time.  This year will make-or-break his reputation as virtually every publication out there has the 49ers pegged to win the division…  Our gut tells us something will go wrong here.  In any event, Smith shouldnʼt be anywhere near your starting lineup unless you play in a 12-team league that starts 2 QBs.  Even then, Smith is what you would consider ‘borderline’ as he simply doesn’t have a whole hell of a lot to offer in terms of upside.  Weʼd rather have a number of other backups in a 10-team league.

The Tragic Story Behind His Resurgence

The Pro career of former 1st overall pick Alex Smith didn't start out so well, but Smith was able to use the unfortunate events of this tragic story to turn his life around in the NFL:

Alex signed a two-year, $6.5 million contract in March of 2009 that included another $4 million available through incentives.  Here’s the final year on that short-lived deal:

Injury Report


Smith had a couple of surgeries in the past, but he's past them now and good to go for 2010

Hardest Strength of Schedule for QBs

Pyro's take: Based on Stagg Party's Strength of Schedule (aka SoS) for the v2 of the Pyro Draft Kit Andrew Luck and the Colts have the hardest SoS for QBs this season. Which doesn't bode well with his already PUP status. The Chiefs and Alex Smith have the second hardest schedule for passing QBs and Marcus Mariota has the 3rd worst schedule this season.

Fantasy Goo: I really look hard at SoS for any player, matchups are a huge part of the game.

Worst Strength of Schedule for Quarterbacks

Pyro's take: Based on Stagg Party's SoS from tab 5 (of 25) of our Pyro Fantasy Football Draft Kit, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts have the hardest schedule for any QB in 2017. Alex Smith and the Chiefs have the 2nd hardest, and Marcus Mariota of the Titans have the 3rd hardest schedule against passing defenses this season.

Fantasy Goo: With Andrew Luck starting training camp on the PUP, and the intel that he has a really difficult schedule this year – I'm getting a little cold on the Stanford QB. He's been on my team every year since being in the league, but injury plus tough schedule may not bode well for Andrew. Pick up our Draft Kit today: http://bit.ly/2017DraftKit-v2

Stream Smith in 17

Pyro's take: Alex Smith should be a great streaming option in San Diego as the Chiefs must win to have a chance at the AFC West crown despite the Chargers recent success on defense.

Fantasy Goo: Smith exploited the Bosa-less Bolts for 363 passing yards and 3 total TDs Week 1 and now the Chargers are only playing for pride.

AS a Decent Streaming Option in FF Semi-Finals

Pyro's take: Smith is your safe, floor play. He will probably not blow the doors off, but inside the top 12 is certainly do-able against the Titans, as they visit Arrowhead.

Fantasy Goo: According to FF Today, in the last 5 weeks, no other defense has allowed more fantasy goo to opposing gun slingers than the Titans. He is my official QB streamer of the week.

Both KC players are out

Pyro's take: With both Ware and Smith out, Charcandrick West is a huge chalk play in DFS at a very low price on all sites.

Fantasy Goo: Reid wants to run the ball and play D. Jacksonville has a schedule adjusted ranking of 24th against PPR backs.

Smith owners missing his rushing

Pyro's take: Where oh where has Alex Smith's rushing gone? Double digit rushing yards in every game but 1 last season (17 of 18 games played, including playoffs), but just 1 time so far this season in 7 games.

A Smith - My Streaming QB

Pyro's take: Andy Reid is 15-2 when coming off the bye, and Smith versus Oakland, in the last few years has approximately an 18 FF Point floor.

Fantasy Goo: Smith was available in 76% of NFL leagues as of Friday. Plus, he has a choice schedule the next few weeks.

Alex Smith completed 17-of-22 passes for 190 yards, one touchdown, and one interception


Pyro's take: He was a surgeon out on the field, minus the one interception. His 190-yards passing is typical of Alex Smith and he also rushed for 27-yards. He busted loose for a 64-yard run, but it was called back for holding.

Alex Smith may be handing the ball off quite a bit next week if Jeremy Maclin is out.

Andy Reid left room for his plan on using starters this weekend


Pyro's take: Adam Teicher via Twitter "Reid left himself some wiggle room there. He said playing to win is the plan at least for now."

Expected to Play in Week 12


Pyro's take: Media has commented that the sprain he suffered in practice is "not that serious". Although, if he were placed on a snap count, would owners be able to tell? Kelce has been a huge dissappoinment this year. The Bills will be missing two starting D-lineman so perhaps that will give Smith a bit more time to find Kelce and his recievers.

11/29/15, 07:15 AM CST by PyromaniacMo

Chiefs have allowed the second-most sacks in the league this year.


Pyro's take: Ed Werder reported via twitter "#Chiefs have allowed 24 sacks, 2nd-most in #NFL. Alex Smith has been sacked 68 times over the last two seasons, tied for 3rd-most."

SIngletary backs his new QB

49ers quarterback Alex Smith may have had a sub-par game last Sunday throwing three INTs, but coach Mike Singletary doesn't believe it was all his fault and is still backing his starting QB. "I thought Alex did a good job throwing the football," Singletary said Monday. "Alex had one play that was on him."

Pyro's take: Smith is entrenched as the starter in San Fran as he brings a whole new dimension to that offense with the vertical passing game. We'd be surprised if Alex doesn't throw for at least 3 TDs Thursday night against the 10-cent-ho Bears D, so feel free to start him on your fantasy football team this week.

49ers: Passing team or Running team?

With strong-armed quarterback Alex Smith running the show, 49ers OC Jimmy Raye decided to air it out against the Colts on Sunday going with 36 passing plays compared to 18 rushes. Running back Frank Gore had just 13 carries on the day.

Pyro's take: The offense didn't stray too far from their conservative nature, however, as Raye still went with the common two-wide formation as opposed to a three-wide set. You can expect the Niners to even up the run-pass ratio a bit next week at home against the Titans.

Offense won't change with Alex Smith at QB

When asked how the switch to quarterback Alex Smith will change what the team does on offense, 49ers OC Jimmy Raye replied with a simple "None".

Pyro's take: Coaches will be coaches. They take a lot of pride in what they do, but the fact is, Smith has a much better arm than Shaun Hill did, so the team will almost certainly air the ball out more, especially with Vernon Davis playing lights-out and Michael Crabtree in the mix.
Pick up Smith and give yourself a nice QB2 for your fantasy football team.

Alex Smith takes over as 49ers starting QB

49ers coach Mike Singletary announced on Monday that quarterback Alex Smith will be the team's new starting QB beginning in Week 8 against the Colts.

Pyro's take: Good call Samurai. Hill wasn't getting the job done, and with Smith almost single-handedly bringing the team back from a 21-0 deficit, he deserves this shot. With those receivers, Smith will be a decent backup fantasy football QB going forward.

Alex Smith will sit out preseason finale

San Francisco 49ers backup QB Alex Smith will not play in the Niners preseason finale on Friday.

Pyro's take: Smith did everything he could to battle back from obscurity with the 49ers, but his injured thumb all but put a halt to his efforts. He may be the backup QB on paper right now, but rookie Nate Davis will be taking that role from him at some point this year.

Alex Smith to sit out week with thumb sprain

San Francisco 49ers backup QB Alex Smith will sit out the week of practice and next preseason game with a sprained thumb. Smith was injured while tackling the Raiders Ricky Brown after throwing him an interception in last week's game.

Pyro's take: Smith has already lost his bid to become the starter in San Fran, so his missing practice this week isn't as big of a deal as it could have been. We still stand behind our assessment that Alex has a future in the league, whether it be with the 49ers or not. If Smith sticks with the team, he can still be drafted as a handcuff to Shaun Hill towards the end of your draft. If not, leave him out on the waiver wire for a possible pickup later in the season.

Update: Singletary chooses Hill to be his starting QB

San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary finally came to a decision regarding his starting QB in Week 1, and the answer is Shaun Hill. The verdict came just one day after Singletary stated that he wouldn't put a timetable on this decision.

Pyro's take: This call is not at all a surprise, as Hill has not only outperformed Alex Smith throughout the preseason, but also went 5-3 as the starter for the 49ers at the end of last season. Hill is by no means a starting fantasy QB in 2009, but you could do worse in selecting a backup QB and may find yourself getting decent ROI on Hill later in the year, especially if Michael Crabtree ever signs.

Singletary not ready to pick a starting QB yet

After watching film of the 49ers last exhibition game, coach Mike Singletary said that he still hasn't come to a decision on who will be the starting QB come Week 1 of the regular season. Though QB Shaun Hill is generally perceived to be the front-runner in the competition, QB Alex Smith seems to have stayed close enough to give Singletary more to think about. “I have to look at some more film,” Singletary said. “It takes me a little longer than some other people. I think attention to detail is key.”

Pyro's take: The 49ers could end up having a relatively high-powered offense this season, especially if Michael Crabtree ever signs, so choosing the right QB to head the helm is an important decision. We're still behind the thought that Shaun Hill will be the man in Week 1, and if that turns out to be the case, Hill could emerge as a decent backup fantasy QB in 2009.

Alex Smith to get the start on Saturday

San Francisco QB Alex Smith will get the start in this Saturday's preseason match-up against the Raiders according to coach Mike Singletary.

Pyro's take: This will probably be Smith's last chance to impress the coaches enough to make him the starter for the 49ers in Week 1. At this point, Shaun Hill is still the best bet to be the man running the offense to begin the season, but if Smith can put together a Joe Montana-like game on Saturday, Singletary might have a tougher decision to make than he originally thought.
